that is the other day president obama was campaigning down in virginia. he made that very remark. he was saying i know i have supporters out there in the audience but i wanted to talk to some of the folks who are watching on tv who may not be my supporters. mitt romney in some of his campaign remarks have said the same thing. so the mention are sounding a little more independent or centrist than they did in the past. >> gregg: what is curious and this is borne out by some of the polls, roughly 60% of the likely voters think the president's economic policies -- there it is -- have hurt the economy or made no difference at all. in other words, you have to add the bottom 38 plus 21. take a look at the other numbers. when asked if policies need changing, a stunning 73% said yes. how is it that an incumbent leads when voters are demanding change? >> that is the very big question of this election. mitt romney has tried to run as a change agent, but what the obama campaign has done very well is attack him in critical swing states that both candidates wanted to win. he has done a good job of disqualifyin
know, you know, president obama has been down this road before. he did very well with hispanic voters four years ago, winning something like 67% of the hispanic vote nationwide. in north carolina, the hispanic vote while small can be significant. that's a state where president obama only won by 14,000 votes four years ago. there's many more hispanic voters than that. i think the philosophy or the strategy for the romney camp is to try to win some of those voters back. they're doing it by going on the air with advertising. a lot of the advertising is advertising introducing mitt romney to voters because aate lot of people don't know him. biographical ads. you have some with his son craig who is a fluent spanish speaker, speaking directly to hispanics. that's very important. he does that. then you've also got some ads where they talk about an ad they call the truth. they try to tell what they see as the truth about president obama where he's fallen short. they're trying to sell that kind of three-pronged message to hispanics in raleigh and try to win some of those votes >> woodruff: thi

that might help obama. we have gone down a slippery slope here. look, bill, we have had liberal bias or bias in the press for a long time. for many years. but it's gotten worse starting in 2008. now we have a press that actively engages in the re-election. putting out a narrative that romney is a loser, you know running polls, they are using like telling n.i.v. adding on romney. romney is not my issue here. not only decide to support obama on this issue the last two weeks, what we see is a press that has decided that it will not tell the american people the truth. not only tell people oho they may or may not vote for but now telling people what truth they may know and what truth they may not know. >> what is the truth? look, we have covered this story responsibly here on the factor, all right? >> you have. >> but i only take it up to where the facts lie. and that's why i gave the time line. and the other thing is unfortunately the folks don't care about this story. they don't. the massive amount of people in america. not people who watch cable news and listen to talk radio but just the folks
for the fracking industry which president obama wants to shut down. ohio is not going to vote to give up its jobs by turning them over to the epa. if rob portman is a member of the ticket, that will solidify the ohio look, but i don't even think it's necessary. a very solid yes vote. the hardest of those states, virginia. virginia is hard to predict. the home of a very good senate campaign by george allen against a very good democrat, tim kane. both are former governors. there is a large military and reservists vote in virginia. that vote is sponsoring decidedly against president obama because he is definitely against the military, cutting what ought to be a 313 ship navy below 200 navy ships. cutting 20,000 marines and 8,000 army and another 20,000 sailors and airmen from the rolls. he has canceled the f-22 and numerous other weapon systems. he is messing around with military pay, benefits, retirement, and that should put mitt romney over the top in virginia, but it is a close state because of the facts. the least recession impacted state in the union is virginia. the reason the viejo is the lea

according to the polls i've seen. he's made some progress on the outside margin that obama got 14 points in 2008 among the college graduate voters but he's not making nearly enough voters to take the state and if you break it down geographically the denver metro area is about half the vote in the state but that looks very similar in the polling data as it did in 2008. finally, the poster child for demographic change in the united states and how it's been shifted pretty rapidly over time as the great state of nevada. obama is running ahead of though not nearly as far as he did in 2008. but it still will cut off on my monitor but you can see an incredible increase of nine percentage points for the share of eligible voters who are minorities according to the data between 2008 and 2012. that's a massive demographic tide against the republicans and you can see there's been a decline of five percentage points in the share of voters that are colleges john became group into bills and eight. that is a very quick run through some of the swing states in the 2008 election. maybe it's time for me to

, last friday, in woodbridge, virginia, obama said again that he wants to use or savings to pay down the debt and put people to work. i think that is fair game for the debates if they go there. for romney, i have a prediction that i think is solid. it goes back to the title of his campaign book two years ago -- "no apology." ever since, romney has made a point to criticize obama every time he thinks there is any whiff of apology in something the president has said. i first heard it myself last april here in town, when romney was making a speech to a group of newspaper executives. he blamed obama for the anemic recovery and said, "obama's attention has been elsewhere. he was not focused enough on the economy. his attention had been on things like a government takeover of health care and apologizing for america abroad." in our fact check that day, we quoted what obama had said in overseas trips, including an assertion that at times the u.s. had acted contrary to its own ideals or had been selective in where it sought to promote democracy. it had sometimes shown an arrogance toward alli

down and stabilize them and there is more political consensus to these views. look at what the obama administration is doing. it is not that different. not that different than many other ways that the bush administration did throughout the two terms, especially at the end. given that there is not consensus, that is one of the reasons that this is not an issue with the campaign, but i think it is also why things are a little bit more contingent in the national security act. >> thank you. >> any prediction for retirement at the end of the term? >> it depends on who the next president ends. obviously we have several justices who are getting older, but i think most of them would feel that if they were voluntarily retiring and not forced to do so by health concerns or some other extenuating circumstances, the honorable thing to do is retiring during the term that pointed you in the first place. so you could see justice ginsburg, now that she was accomplished, she was trying to make a record for how long she stayed on the court in 2014. you might see justice scalia or justice kennedy reti
